The Council has the power to raise money each year from the Council Tax payers of Marcham (the precept). This is collected by the Vale of White Horse District Council on behalf of the Parish, as a part of the total Council Tax charge which pays for services at County, District and Parish level.
The financial year for the Parish Council runs from 1st April to 31st March. We normally set the budget at our meeting in December of each year.
The spending by the Council is audited, both by an Internal Auditor (who is independent of the Council) and by an External Auditor who is appointed by the Government.
The following links give details of the budget for the current year and the audited accounts for previous years.
